Our Parents Say

I’ve been so impressed with Goffs-Churchgate. My daughter is in Year 7 and is really enjoying her time so far, plus she has come on leaps and bounds academically from when she first started. She really enjoys coming to school, which in turn makes us very happy. It’s a fabulous school; well done to all the staff for making this school what it is today.

I am extremely happy with the school. My daughter is doing so well and has achieved a lot in five months. I can say that the discipline procedure is fair and affective and keeps my daughter on track. I would definitely recommend the school to future Year 7.

Great school, managed well. Our child loves it at Goffs-Churchgate.

My daughter is really happy to come to school.

Believing in the kids and not giving up on them.

My daughter felt that the teacher really listened and understood her concerns, so I really appreciate and thank him for that.

I am blown away by the care that is shown (and has always been shown) by Goffs staff to my children.

Our child is thriving as part of the Goffs community.

My daughter is flourishing at Goffs; thanks to all the staff for their dedication.
